    Since meeting Kim & Dale just before moving to Fort Worth in 1978, I have admired her and Dale, loved them and shared early history in ministry. Kim was always loving, caring, and a woman of deep faith. I recall how Paul says “Absent from the body, present with the Lord.” The Lord is with you, and Kim is not far away either.

    Thinking of you all during this difficult time, may her memory always be a blessing to those who knew her and may her legacy be carried forward by her loved ones actions, memories and accomplishments. Sending lots of love from Johns Creek!
